Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

1997 Chevrolet Venture Owner Comments

problem #1

Venture 3.4L V6

  • Automatic transmission

Had to replace several bulbs due to water leaking in the headlight assembly. I took the assembly apart once and cleaned them thoroughly, then glued them back together with J B WELD (epoxy). This "fix" lasted only about a year! Now they are leaking again and have turned yellow. Now the only solution I see worthwhile is to replace the whole assembly with new lights. I can't see very far in front of the car at night and I consider it a safety hazard which General Motors should be held responsible for. There should be a recall on all GM vehicles using this type of light assembly.
